Chapter 9

Revelation 9:1 And the FIFTH ANGEL SOUNDED {sounded during the second reign of latter day Babylon of its trumpet/warning during the first spiritual wilderness journey of 1260 days}, and I saw a STAR {huge burning stone ejected high into the sky out of the mountain/super volcano} fall{as an arrow}from heaven {sky}unto the earth{land}: and to him was given theKEY {referring to the burning star’s impact/great earthquake/spiritual key} of the BOTTOMLESS PIT {being the super volcano/bottomless pit in the USA}.

The fifth angel with trumpet warns the number seven reigning kingdom named latter day Babylon of the same visions and oracles written beneath the fifth seal. During latter day Babylon's second reigning period, the fifth angel with trumpet sounded its warning trumpet concerning the falling star. This falling star is a large hot stone that is ejected out of the bottomless pit into heaven (sky). It falls with great velocity from heaven (sky) and impacts the earth (land). Its impact with the land is its key, that it received to open the bottomless pit. This bottomless pit refers to the super volcano that lies beneath Yellowstone National Park.

The star has a scriptural name of Death (Abaddon). Its impact in the USA will cause the super volcano to remain continually open, as it initially erupts smoke and ash for five months. Accordingly, this star has the key – referring to a great earthquake the star creates on impact – to open the bottomless pit (super volcano) of hell fire (magma).

When the star's impact opens with its key an immense super volcanic crater to the bottomless pit in the USA, it marks the time of the latter day resurrection. At this latter day resurrection, the overcomers of every generation who were slain or died while remaining faithful to a living messenger’s message will rise to life and health. These overcomers are the souls under the golden altar. Also, all who died in every generation will also rise to life and health.

The fifth angel with trumpet correlates with the message beneath the fifth seal in Revelation 6:9-11. At the moment the star impacts the USA, the two witnesses' predictions revived to life from the perceived total failure (death) of the two witnesses visions and oracles being fulfilled during the sign of Jonah.

From the day the star (rider on the white horse) impacts the USA and causes the super volcano to erupt smoke and ash for five months, the rebellious people living in the USA will begin to be progressively tormented during these five months by anarchy (rider on the blood covered horse), famine (rider on the blackened horse), and death (rider on the pale horse).

*******

Revelation 9:2 And HE {impacted star}OPENED {with its key/earthquake} the BOTTOMLESS PIT {super volcano}; and there arose a SMOKE out of the PIT {opened mouth of the land/Earth}, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the SUN {over the USA} and the AIR were DARKENED {at the end of five months of erupting smoke and ash} by reason of the smoke of the PIT {that will have erupted for five months from the opened super volcano/bottomless pit}.

The star's impact causes an earthquake in the USA. This earthquake is the key that opens the bottomless pit (super volcano's mouth). Smoke and ash erupt into the atmosphere for five months, which near the end of these five months the sun’s light and the atmosphere will be darkened over the tormented USA.

*******

Revelation 9:3 And there came out of the smoke LOCUSTS {representing the effects of continual smoke and ash erupting from the opened super volcano's mouth into the atmosphere} upon the EARTH {land of the USA}: and unto them was given POWER {to sting with anarchy and hunger pains}, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

As smoke with hot ash continually erupt for five months from the super volcano in the USA, darkness will have spread to cover the land. Throughout that time, anarchy will have been progressively tormenting all states of the USA, which is equated with the rider that was given a great sword as he rode the blood-covered white horse. At the same time, the hot ash with spreading darkness will cause agriculture to progressively fail, just as locusts spread from one place to another to consume agriculture, which is equated with the rider holding scales on his blackened blood-covered white horse. In that time, the states of the USA will be tormented by the progressive affects of anarchy and famine spreading through the land. The torment of anarchy and famine is likened to a scorpion’s sting.

*******

Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded THEM {erupting thick smoke with hot ash}that they should not hurt the GRASS {representing the third group/great multitude of redeemed} of the earth, neither any GREEN THING {representing the second group/144,000/24 elders of redeemed}, neither any TREE {representing the first group/four priests of redeemed}; but only those MEN {representing states and nations} which have NOT {had not placed} the SEAL{written visions and oracles beneath the seventh seal and the everlasting gospel} of GOD {seventh plagued angel} in their FOREHEADS {front of their minds}.

From the time darkness is covering the USA, the plague of anarchy and hunger will be hurting the USA's states (referred to as men). However, the latter day people who are of the first group (equated with the trees of Revelation 9:4) and second group (equated with green things) of redeemed will have placed the mark of God upon the front of their minds during the sign of Jonah. Thereby knowing the visions and oracles, which are written beneath the scroll of life's (God's) seventh seal, are being fulfilled. The third group (great multitude/grass of Revelation 9:4) of redeemed will accept the everlasting gospel during a time of trouble happening in the fallen USA. Thereby at the explosion of the swelled to heaven super volcano, they will then place on the front of their minds (foreheads) the seal of God (seventh plagued angel). They also will not be hurt by the plagues of anarchy and hunger, that will accompany the spreading lake of fire throughout the world from within the fallen USA.

*******

Revelation 9:5 And to THEM {spiritual winged horses with lions' heads and teeth having faces of locusts with tails of scorpions, equated with anarchy and famine caused by thick darkness created by smoke with hot ash erupting from the opened mouth of the super volcano in the USA} it was given that they should NOT KILL THEM {states of the USA}, but that they should be tormented{with anarchy and hunger pains}FIVE MONTHS {the five months begin from the time the bottomless pit/super volcano is opened after the star's impact}: and their TORMENT {anarchy and hunger pains} was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

All states of the USA will experience the torments of anarchy and starvation, which get progressively worse during five months of smoke and ash. These torments are likened to a scorpion’s sting. In that time of the five months, the overcomers of all generations will be alive to proclaim the everlasting gospel to all nations and redeem (re-save them in this present replay) a great multitude (third group of redeemed) of all nations, just as they were redeemed (re-saved) in the previous replay of the last generation.

*******

Revelation 9:6 And in THOSE DAYS {torments of anarchy and famine} shall MEN {states of the USA and nations} SEEK DEATH, and shall not find it; and shall DESIRE TO DIE {desire to not survive as a state or nation}, and DEATH shall flee from THEM.

During the initial five months of smoke and ash, all states in the USA and other nations will be languishing in misery, as they endure the progressive torment of anarchy and famine. By the end of five months of erupting smoke and ash, states and nations (being referred to as men) will rather die and no longer exist, than having to endure the progressive torment of anarchy and famine in their land. However, at the end of five months when darkness is then covering the whole USA, all states will be barely surviving during darkness, anarchy and famine, as their population continually diminishes during these progressive plagues.

*******

Revelation 9:7 And the SHAPES {bodies} of the LOCUSTS {representing darkness caused by erupting smoke with hot ash that eats up agriculture}were like unto HORSES {horses represent air/wind on which rides the erupting blackness of smoke and ash from the bottomless pit, which cause anarchy/blood-covered white horse and famine/blackened blood-covered white horse} prepared unto BATTLE {with latter day Babylon's kingdom}; and on their heads were as it were CROWNS {since these spiritual horses, equated with the redeemed, will be living to reign over the ruling nation/USA of latter day Babylon’s kingdom}like GOLD {their reign is according to the first witness’/spiritual moon’s silver light/visions mixed with the last witness’/spiritual sun’s coppery light/visions to create the gold crowns}, and their faces were as the faces of MEN {being the face of a locust, correlating them with the beast whose face was like a human/locust}.

Erupting hot ash with thick black smoke from an immense open super volcano rides upon the air. The air is likened to spiritual swarms of winged horses with heads and teeth of lions with faces of locusts and tails of scorpions. In Revelation 9:7, they are as war horses ready for battle with latter day Babylon. The reason why they are referred to as horses is so the correlation can be made between them and the three groups of overcomers from all generations. These horses symbolize all the redeemed that resurrect whether literally or spiritually in the last generation to be written as a believer on the scroll of life. The army of resurrecting smoke with hot ash personify all overcomers. The plague of anarchy (caused by the darkness created by erupting smoke and hot ash covering the sky over the USA) correlates with a beast that has the head and face of a lion upon a four-winged beast and six-winged beast in the judgment. As a lion stealthily stalks, hides, and waits before pouncing on his prey, so darkness will conceal people who prey on others during a time of anarchy. The plague of famine (caused by darkness created by the erupting smoke and hot ash covering the sky over the USA) correlates with a beast that has a human-like/locust face upon a four-winged beast and six-winged beast in the judgment. The locust that has a face that is similar to a human face illustrates how thick darkness will come down and destroy agriculture, just as swarms of locusts descend and devour vegetation.

The gold crowns reveal that anarchy and hunger will rule over the fallen kingdom of latter day Babylon according to the spiritual moon's (first witness') silvery light (written visions) and spiritual sun's (last witness') coppery light (written visions), just as the redeemed resurrect to reign with the seventh plagued angel's visions and oracles over the fallen kingdom of latter day Babylon.

The first witness' visions and oracles (likened to the spiritual moon's silvery light/visions) are written on the fifth angel with trumpet on the first side of the scroll of life concerning the event that was happening. At the same time, the last witness' visions and oracles (likened to the spiritual sun's coppery light/visions) wrote on the fifth angel with trumpet but on the scroll of life's last side concerning the event that was happening. The visions of spiritual silvery light are mixed with spiritual coppery light on the seventh plagued angel to create the spiritual gold of the golden crowns.

*******

Revelation 9:8 And THEY {winged bodies of horses with heads and teeth of lions with faces of locusts} had HAIR {of a lion} as the HAIR of WOMEN {equated with the bride/new Jerusalem of the Lamb}, and their teeth were as the TEETH of LIONS {symbolizing that these spiritual locusts will be tormenting with famine at the same time anarchy is taking place, hence the lions head and teeth with the face of a locust}.

The horses have hair like women to equate them with the bride (new Jerusalem) of the Lamb. The plague of anarchy is likened to a lion's head and face. Whereas the plague of famine is likened to a locust's face. When these winged bodies of horses with heads and teeth of lions and faces of locusts issue from the opened bottomless pit, they represent the time when anarchy and famine are loosed on the fallen USA.

The wind that carries the blackness of smoke and hot ash from the opened super volcano (bottomless pit) is represented by winged bodies of horses with lions' heads and teeth, having faces of locusts. Throughout the initial 50 days of erupting smoke and ash, the wind that carries the blackness of smoke and hot ash is equated with the first group and second group of redeemed. As the great multitude is being gathered, they then represent the air that carries the continuing blackness of smoke and ash out of the super volcano after the new day of Pentecost. The super volcano is opened at the star's impact as the latter day resurrection takes place. Then 49 days after the resurrection, the new day of Pentecost begins on the 50th evening.

The star's impact will release from the opened super volcano the wind that carries the darkness of smoke and hot ash, which bring anarchy and famine on the USA. Therefore, out of the bottomless pit (super volcano) will figuratively rise winged bodies of horses with lions' heads and teeth with faces of locusts, that represent a time of anarchy (represented by the lion's head and teeth) and famine (represented by the locust's face). The head of a lion with lion's teeth is synonymous with the red horse whose rider had a great sword. The face of a locust is synonymous with the black horse whose rider held a pair of balances in Revelation, Chapter 6. According to the first witness' visions and oracles of what Michael saw and heard happening, the wind that carries the darkness of smoke and ash is equated with four-winged cherubs. These cherubs have four wings, body of a horse, head and teeth of a lion with a face of a locust. According to the last witness' visions and oracles of what Gabriel saw and heard happening, the wind that carries the smoke and hot ash is equated with six-winged seraphs. These seraphs have six wings, body of a horse, head and teeth of a lion with a face of a locust.

*******

Revelation 9:9 And THEY {figurative winged bodies of horses with lions' heads and teeth having faces of locusts} had BREASTPLATES, as it were BREASTPLATES of IRON {referring to the invincible and unstoppable smoke with ash}; and the sound of their WINGS {referring to the erupting sound of air carrying the blackness of smoke with hot ash} was as the sound of chariots of MANY HORSES {representing all three groups of believers of all generations} running to BATTLE {the battle of Armageddon against the states of the USA).

The figurative sound of the wings of these spiritual locusts – which sound like chariots of war – refers to the rushing sound of ejecting smoke with hot ash from a super volcano. In Revelation 9:9 it states that the horses have breastplates of iron. These breastplates illustrate that the smoke with hot ash is invincible, as it wars with the states of the USA. The impact of a great star (stone cut out/ejected from the mountain) causes the fifth angel’s woe of smoke and ash issuing from the opened super volcano, which lasts five months (as stated in Revelation 9:10). At that time when smoke and ash are erupting from the mouth of an immense super volcano in the USA, the states and cities will be progressively plagued by anarchy and famine. For five months, the USA's states will be warring with anarchy and famine.

*******

Revelation 9:10 And THEY {winged horses with heads and teeth of lions with faces of locusts} had TAILS like unto SCORPIONS, and there were STINGS {symbolizing the effects of anarchy and hunger pains} in their TAILS: and their POWER was to HURT{with hunger} MEN {figurative men/tribes/states of the USA and nations} FIVE MONTHS {five months of smoke and hot ash}.

The tails of these spiritual locusts represent the effect the smoke and hot ash has on the states (states/tribes are referred to as men) of the USA. The erupting smoke with hot ash will slowly spread during five months to cause darkness to spread over the land. During these five months, plant life and the economy will progressively worsen. Anarchy and famine will progress in every state of the USA. By the end of five months of smoke and ash, all states (referred to as men) will be feeling the terrible sting of anarchy and hunger pains, which is likened to the torment caused by the sting of a scorpion.

*******

Revelation 9:11 And THEY {winged horses with heads and teeth of a lion with faces of locusts and tails of a scorpion} had a KING {referring to the seventh plagued angel} over THEM {spiritual locusts/smoke with hot ash}, which is the ANGEL {seventh plagued angel} of the BOTTOMLESS PIT {being the massive super volcano erupting in the fallen USA}, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is ABADDON {Destroyer/Death}, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon {Destroyer/Death}.

Ruling over the initial plague of smoke with hot ash will be the seventh plagued angel. According to the original Hebrew language (tongue) of which the Book of Revelation was written by the Apostle John, the name of the seventh plagued angel is Abaddon (death/destroyer). When the original Hebrew manuscript was translated into Greek, the seventh plagued angel's name of Abaddon (Hebrew word) became Apollyon (an ancient Greek word, meaning death/destroyer).

The seventh plagued angel has already become the king of kings and lord of lords, which is to happen again in the present replay when the five months of smoke and ash are fulfilled. The seventh plagued angel will again rise to sit and reign on the swelled to heaven bottomless pit (super volcano) from within the destroyed USA to rule again over the kingdom of latter day Babylon. From this same super volcano (bottomless pit), the seventh plagued angel (king) will release again (during the present replay of the last generation) its army of smoke with hot ash to battle with the ruling nation (USA) of the latter day Babylonian beast (kingdom), as a king of old would command his army to battle. The seventh plagued angel's army of smoke with hot ash (spiritual lions' heads and locusts) erupting from the fiery bottomless pit will wound the states of the USA during the initial five months of torment, just as it happened in the previous replay.

*******

Revelation 9:12 ONE WOE is past; and, behold, there come TWO WOES {warnings of the sixth angel with trumpet and seventh angel with trumpet} MORE hereafter.

The two remaining woes pertain to the visions and oracles written on the sixth angel with trumpet and seventh angel with trumpet. The two witnesses wrote the visions and oracles of things they witnessed happening. These visions and oracles warn the USA's states and other nations of the woes before they are literally fulfilled.

*******

Revelation 9:13 And the SIXTH ANGEL SOUNDED {sounded its trumpet/warning during the second reigning period of latter day Babylon during the first spiritual wilderness journey of 1260 days}, and I heard a VOICE {representing an oracle written on the sixth angel with trumpet} from the FOUR HORNS {one pair of these four horns are of a cherub representing the visions that the first witness saw (visions) and heard (oracles) happening and wrote on the sixth angel with trumpet, while the other pair of horns are also of a cherub representing what the last witness was seeing/visions and hearing/oracles as also revealed by the sixth angel with trumpet, since the seventh plagued angel is revealing both the first side and last side of the scroll of life} of the GOLDEN ALTAR {representing the two witnesses' – two cherubs each having two horns of the four-horned golden altar – combined written predictions on the sixth angel with trumpet concerning the super volcano that is opened by the star's impact after the sign of Jonah} which is before God {being the seventh plagued angel/God that sits between two cherubs on the mercy seat of the golden Ark of the covenant in the temple's Holy of Hollies},

The sixth angel with trumpet warns the number seven reigning kingdom named latter day Babylon of the same visions and oracles written beneath the sixth seal. During latter day Babylon's second reigning period, the sixth angel with trumpet sounded to latter day Babylon concerning the ejected stone that falls from heaven to earth and is given a key to open the bottomless pit (super volcano).

Prior to the end of the first spiritual wilderness journey of 1260 days and before latter day Babylon's second reigning period ended, the sixth angel’s trumpet sounded. Then three and a half days before latter day Babylon's third reigning period ended, the new day of atonement began. On that day, the star seemed as if it should have hit the USA to open the bottomless pit, which failed to happen. This parallels the past type of the Israelites failing to take the promised land of Canaan after their first wilderness journey from the Egyptian Red Sea to Canaan. The voice of the sixth angel with trumpet from the golden altar in Revelation 9:13 is equated with the high priest's voice on the new day of Atonement at the end of the first spiritual wilderness journey. This high priest's voice represents the voice of thunder that should have been caused by the stone's ejection from the bottomless pit. This ejected stone that falls as a glowing star seemed that it should have been heard three and a half days after the end of the first spiritual wilderness journey, just as the Israelites of old thought they would be living in the land of Canaan at the end of their first wilderness journey to Canaan.

In the past type, old Moses constructed a temple during the Israelites' first wilderness journey to Canaan. The front part of the temple's inner court, where the copper altar of burnt sacrifices was located, is equated with the ending of the seventh angel with trumpet written on the scroll of life's last side. The same front area of the inner court represents the beginning of the first angel with trumpet written on the scroll of life's first side. Throughout Israel's first wilderness journey, the six parts of the temple's holy place is equated with the first angel with trumpet, second angel with trumpet, third angel with trumpet, fourth angel with trumpet, fifth angel with trumpet, and sixth angel with trumpet. Therefore near the end of the first wilderness journey, the area where the temple's golden altar was located, close to the curtain separating the Holy of Hollies, is equated with the sixth angel with trumpet.

*******

Revelation 9:14 Saying to the SIXTH ANGEL which had the TRUMPET, Loose the FOUR ANGELS {four angels being the visions of the rider on his white horse that became blood-covered and blackened by thick smoke, which mixed together created the pale-colored horse are equated with the four kings of old Persia that ruled over old Babylon} which are BOUND {hence bound/dead until released from under the spiritual temple's golden altar} in the GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES {this river that ran through old Babylon symbolizes the latter day ruling nation – USA – of latter day Babylon/confusion}.

The ending of the sixth angel mixes with the beginning of the seventh angel. Accordingly, when the sixth angel was finishing sounding its trumpet at the end of the first spiritual wilderness journey, 3½ days later (when the seventh angel with trumpet began to be reveal its first light and first thunder, the star (ejected hot stone) seemed as if it should have impacted the USA to fulfill the written predictions of the rider (star) on his white horse that became blood-covered and blackened by thick smoke, which mixed together created the pale-colored horse. Had the star impacted the USA, then the four angels' (four riders') visions of the white horse that became blood-covered and blackened by thick smoke, which mixed together created the pale-colored horse will have resurrected to life to be fulfilled after lying dead (hence the written visions of the two witnesses totally rejected) during the 3½ days after the first spiritual wilderness journey.

The visions and oracles of four angels (four riders) represent what the first witness (Michael) saw and heard (as written on the scroll of life's first side) and what the last witness (Gabriel) saw and heard, as written on the scroll of life's last side. What the first witness saw and heard during the evenings concerning the visions and oracles of four riders (four angels) and four horses (four winds) failed (died) at the end of the fourth seal and end of the fourth angel with trumpet beneath the temple's golden altar, since the first witness' visions and oracles of four angels (four riders) pertain to messengers and overcomers that die before the star's impact.

At the moment the first thunder of the seventh angel with trumpet sounded, the ejected hot stone with a great sound of thunder seemed as if it should have fell as a great to impact the USA and resurrect the dead visions of four riders and four horses from the nation (spiritual river) of the USA, while at the same time the resurrection of the dead seemed a if it should happen. Thereby, beginning the fulfillment of the four angels' (four riders') visions and oracles 3½ days after the first spiritual wilderness journey. Instead, the sounding of the first of seven thunders of the seventh angel with trumpet revealed the resurrection to life of the messages pertaining to the visions and oracles of the four angels (four riders) and the white, red, black, and pale horses. These visions and oracles written on six angels with trumpets will be prophesied again to the USA and surrounding nations during the second spiritual wilderness journey of 1260 days. During that time, latter day Babylon will be reigning during its third period that ends by the falling star's impact opening the super volcano. The two witnesses' written visions and oracles concerning four riders and four horses will be proclaimed again from six of seven lights (visions) and six of seven thunders (oracles) of the seventh angel with trumpet.

In a past type, four kings of Persia with the kings of Media ruled over the kingdom of old Babylon. In our day, when the four angels' (four riders') visions are fulfilled on latter day Babylon's kingdom according to the first witness' (Michael's) written predictions on the scroll of life's first side, these four angels (four riders) are equated with the four kings of Persia that ruled over the kingdom of old Babylon. When these four angels (four riders) are fulfilled on latter day Babylon's kingdom according to the last witness' (Gabriel's) visions and oracles written on the scroll of life's last side, they are likened to the kings of old Media that ruled over old Babylon's kingdom.

*******

Revelation 9:15 And the FOUR ANGELS {being the visions of the four kings/four horsemen} were {should have been fulfilled when loosed} LOOSED{but instead are loosed to resurrect 3½ days after the first spiritual wilderness journey to later prophesy again during latter day Babylon's third reigning period}, which were prepared for an HOUR {end of latter day Babylon's one hour reign}, and a DAY {the day when the 3½ days end}, and a MONTH {end of the last month of the 42 months that latter day Babylon is speaking blasphemy against the two witnesses' visions and oracles during latter day Babylon's third/final reigning period}, and a YEAR{the end of the time/year, times/two years, and half a time/half a year}, for{each of the four riders/four angels}to SLAY the THIRD PART {three thirds of each state are slain by the fourth angel - being the fourth rider on pale horse – because it is a mixture of the three riders/three angels and three horses/three winds of white, red, and black colors, which are fulfilled on three parts of each state of the USA} of MEN {figurative men/states and other nations}.

The sixth angel’s trumpet reveals that the first of four angels (visions), that are mentioned in Revelation 9:15, is equated with the rider with bow on his white horse in Revelation, Chapter 6. This rider (first angel) on his white horse (glowing wind) symbolizes the ejected hot rock (star) descending like a bright white arrow (spiritual eagle) from the sky to cause an earthquake on impact with the USA.

Latter day Babylon’s final two reigning periods as the number seven kingdom and number eight kingdom are each figuratively half an hour long. When latter day Babylon’s final (second) half-hour reigning period ends, its “one hour” reign in the figurative land of Canaan will have expired (see Revelation 17:12). At that time, the star's impact in the USA will cause an earthquake which opens the bottomless pit (super volcano). Accordingly, the star's impact – represented by the first of four angels (first rider of Revelation 6:2) – was prepared for this “hour.”

The second of four angels (four riders) in Revelation 9:15 refers to the rider who is holding a big sword while riding his white blood-covered horse in Revelation, Chapter 6. This rider (second angel) on his white blood-covered horse symbolizes a huge sword of anarchy that progresses in the USA's land. Three and a half (3½) days after the star hits the USA and opens the bottomless pit is the “day” when anarchy begins (see Revelation 11:11). On that “day,” people in the USA will begin to be slain with the sword of anarchy. Hence, the second angel (second rider of Revelation 6:4), that brings the sword of anarchy, was prepared for this “day.”

The third of four angels (four riders) in Revelation 9:15 refers to the rider who is holding scales, as he rides his bright-white blood-covered smoke-blackened horse in Revelation Chapter 6. This rider (third angel) on the smoke-blackened horse represents darkness (caused by the smoke and hot ash issuing from the bottomless pit), which brings progressive famine to the land from the end of the last month of latter day Babylon speaking great things of what it envisioned for the world's future. These big ideas of what the USA envisions the world's future blaspheme for 42 months (see Revelation 13:5) against what the two witnesses envision for the world's future. The two witnesses prophesy of their vision for 1260 days during the 42 months. At the end of the last month of these 42 months, smoke with hot ash will erupt from an opened super volcano, causing darkness to spread over the USA. With sunlight gradually being veiled, agriculture will begin failing. Hence, the third angel (third rider of Revelation 6:5), that brings famine, was prepared from the end of the last “month” of the 42 months.

The fourth angel in Revelation 9:15 refers to the rider named Abaddon (Death), who rides his pale horse (illustrating death) in Revelation Chapter 6. This rider (fourth angel) on his pale horse represents the time when, after five months of smoke and ash, the super volcano swells high into the sky and explodes coals of fire, as magma begins to fill the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano. From that time, death comes to all states (referred to as men) of the fallen USA through the white horse (bright light upon the high and lifted-up lava erupting super volcano), red horse (anarchy), black horse (famine), and pale horse (whirlwinds of fire with hailstones and coals of fire).

As an hour, day, and month are all in the same year, so the visions and oracles of the first angel/rider (prepared for an hour), second angel/rider (prepared for a day), and third angel/rider (prepared for a month) are all written on the fourth angel/rider (prepared for a year).

*******

Revelation 9:16 And the NUMBER of the ARMY of the HORSEMEN {being the riders of the horses/three groups of redeemed of all generations}were TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND THOUSAND {200,000,000}: and I {Apostle John} HEARD{oracle} the NUMBER of them.

The number of 200,000,000 riders reveals that there are also 200,000,000 horses. The horses are equated with the three groups of redeemed from all generations. When the first group and second group of redeemed have been gathered, they are equated with new Jerusalem. The city of God (seventh plagued angel) is called New Jerusalem, which represents a huge whirlwind of fire around the high mountain of the super volcano overflowing with spreading lava. New Jerusalem is the spiritual bride of the Lamb (message of latter day Moses) that gives spiritual birth to her children (great multitude that is the third group of redeemed) during the time when smoke and ash are issuing from the bottomless pit, and gathers them when magma is filling the immense mouth of the swelled to heaven bottomless pit. This third group of redeemed is also represented by the smoke and ash that issues from the super volcano. Accordingly, one part of 200,000,000 riders is of the first witness' visions and oracles that gathered one part of the redeemed (spiritual horses), while the other part of 200,000,000 riders is represented by the last witness' visions and oracles that gathered the other part of the redeemed (spiritual horses).

*******

Revelation 9:17 And thus I SAW {vision}the {200,000,000}HORSES (representing the wind) in the vision, and THEM {riders} that sat on THEM {spiritual horses representing the wind}, having BREASTPLATES of FIRE {referring to fire of the lava overflowing from the immense mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano}, and of JACINTH {referring to the blackness of smoke that issued from the super volcano}, and BRIMSTONE {referring to flowing molten rock/lava}: and the HEADS of the HORSES were as the HEADS of LIONS {that bring death by anarchy}; and out of THEIR{riders' and horses'} MOUTHS {representing the immense mouth of the most high super volcano} issued FIRE{referring to fire from the overflowing lava issuing from the immense mouth of the high super volcano}and SMOKE {being the darkness of black smoke that issued from the opened super volcano that caused the torment of anarchy/spiritual lion and famine/spiritual locust in the USA, as warned by the red horse with rider and black horse with rider} and BRIMSTONE {molten rock of flowing lava}.

These horses pertain to the same predictions of the four angels (four riders) that are written beneath the sixth seal. The horses are shown as having breastplates of fire to correlate them with the illuminated hot wind (horses) that accompanies the fire flowing down from the most high mountain of the super volcano. Around the high mountain of the super volcano will materialize a huge fiery whirlwind, which spawns many smaller fiery whirlwinds. At that time, great hailstones (riders on white horses) will rain upon the land. The horses have breastplates of jacinth that correlate with the hot air that accompanies the darkness of black smoke, which brings anarchy (rider with sword on a blood covered white horse) and famine (rider with scales on his smoke blackened horse). The horses also have breastplates of brimstone that correlate with the hot wind that accompanies the molten rock (lava) as it flows throughout the destroyed USA. Breastplates are used on riders and war horses, just as these spiritual horses will fight in the battle of Armageddon with the states of the USA.

Some horses (beasts) have faces and wings of an eagle to correlate them with flying hailstones and ejected coals of fire. Other horses have faces of calves that represent fiery whirlwinds. Other horses have faces of men/locusts to equate them with the erupting smoke with hot ash that caused hunger, and other horses have heads of lions to equate them with anarchy that progresses from the time of spreading darkness caused by erupting thick smoke. The fire, smoke, and brimstone issue from the mouths of the horses (representing written oracles) and riders (representing written visions) because their mouths is equated with the immense mouth of the erupting super volcano.

Revelation 9:18 By THESE THREE {as represented by the white, red, and black horse} was the THIRD PART of MEN {three thirds of each state and nation referred to as men} KILLED{thereby they met the rider – named Death – on his pale horse}, by the FIRE{the spreading fire overflowing from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano causes great hailstones and whirlwinds of fire, as represented by riders with arrows on glowing white horses that kill one third part of the USA's states and nations}, and by the SMOKE {after five months of erupting smoke causes thick darkness, anarchy will kill one third part of the USA's states and nations, as represented riders with swords on red horses that represent anarchy}, and by the BRIMSTONE{overflowing and spreading molten rock/lava will kill one third part of the USA and nations with famine, as represented by the rider holding scales on his black horse}, which issued out of their MOUTHS {representing the immense mouth overflowing with spreading lava from the high super volcano}.

The USA's nation is as a spiritual father, while the USA's capital is as a spiritual mother having spiritual children: states/spiritual men and cities/spiritual women. Intense fire of the high super volcano's immense mouth causes great hailstones and many fiery whirlwinds that kill one third part of each state in the USA, as they spread to all nations. Smoke and darkness will cause anarchy that will kill one third part of each state and nations. Brimstone being molten rock of flowing lava (see Joel 2:4, 11) will kill one third part of each state and nations. By these three written predictions revealed from the scroll of life by the latter day messenger and overcomers is how three parts of each state of the USA and nations are killed from the time the super volcano swells into the sky and explodes coals of fire, as magma fills and overflows down from the immense mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano.

Revelation 9:19 For their POWER is in their MOUTH {their mouth is the immense 40 mile-wide mouth of the lava erupting super volcano}, and in their tails: for their TAILS were like unto SERPENTS {representing intense heat}, and had HEADS, and with them they DO HURT {to hurt all states with intense heat, as the spreading lake of lava spreads throughout the land and world}.

The power of the horses is in their mouth, since their mouth is the immense mouth overflowing with lava from the swelled to heaven super volcano. If the super volcano does not erupt, then fire, smoke, and brimstone can not issue from the horses' mouths.

The horses represent the wind that accompanies the fire, smoke, and brimstone throughout the USA's states and nations. The horses have tails like serpents that represent the intense heat emanating from flowing lava. Anyone close to flowing lava will be hurt by the intense heat radiating from the lava, as if they were bitten by a serpent.

Revelation 9:20 And the REST of the MEN {nations} which were NOT {yet}KILLED by THESE PLAGUES {fire, smoke, and brimstone of an immense lake of fire spreading throughout all the world from within the USA} yet REPENTED NOT of the works of their hands, that they should not worship DEVILS {referring to influential individuals who persuade – as a devil/temptor – people to accept a belief that is contrary to the everlasting gospel proclaimed throughout all nations}, and IDOLS OF GOLD{in the past type, the rebellious Israelites worshiped the golden ark of the covenant, golden candlestick, golden table of showbread in the old temple, while other nations worshiped golden figures}, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood {like the furnishings of old Jerusalem's temple}: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

As the fire, smoke, and brimstone spread as a lake of fire from the swelled to heaven super volcano, the USA's states near the super volcano will be first to be killed by great hailstones and whirlwinds of fire, anarchy, and famine, as the lake of lava spreads throughout the land. There will be parts of states that have not been killed by the fire, smoke, and brimstone. However, these terribly wounded and tormented ruined states will not repent of their old ways and beliefs.

Instead, these ruined states are hoping for salvation through their idols and false beliefs, just as the Israelites of old trusted in the temple and all its furniture instead of the present word of Elohiym, which was spoken through living messengers. The surviving rebellious people in the USA's states will not accept the everlasting gospel and forsake and flee the fallen USA during the five months of erupting smoke and ash, but instead they will remain with what ever possessions and existence they have while hoping in salvation through Yahshua/ Jesus or through some other belief or hope until their state is consumed.

*******

Revelation 9:21 Neither repented THEY {wounded and tormented ruined states} of their MURDERS {of the two witnesses’ visions and oracles and the messengers and people who proclaimed them}, nor of their SORCERIES {the means they use to influence people}, nor of their FORNICATION{of trading while rejecting the two witnesses' present truth}, nor of their THEFTS {claiming God is speaking through them while stealing God’s written words by misquoting them to forward their erroneous vision concerning the world's future}.

The USA's ruined states will still be trying to resist and survive through a terrible time of great hailstones, whirlwinds of fire, continual darkness, anarchy, and famine. However, all overcomers of the USA will have forsaken all states before the super volcano swelled to the sky and exploded coals of fire, as magma fills the immense mouth of the high super volcano. After five months of tormenting plagues caused by smoke and ash erupting and darkening the USA's states, a lake of lava will overflow and descend from the swelled to heaven super volcano's immense mouth to dissolve the ruined and tormented states in the land and nations. The immense light emanating from the lake of lava in the mouth of the super volcano is the ensign to which all three groups of redeemed will travel and enter just before the judgment begins. As three faithful men were cast alive into a fiery furnace and were unharmed (see Daniel 3:27), so the redeemed will enter new Jerusalem to stand before the seventh plagued angel, who is reigning over the lava covered world upon the swelled to heaven mountain of the super volcano within new Jerusalem.
